SYNOPSIS – The heat and humidity stuck around the Wiregrass today, even after yesterday’s cooling showers and thunderstorms. The lack of cloud cover this afternoon allowed lots of sunshine that raised temperatures to the upper 90s while feel-like temperatures hovered around 110°! Isolated showers and thunderstorms will likely cool some areas off before they quickly fade after sunset, leaving behind mostly cloudy skies tonight. Another day of intense heat and pop-up showers and thunderstorms is expected tomorrow while Tuesday holds the better chance for scattered rain coverage. Drier air will move in behind Tuesday’s rain, providing clearer skies and high temperatures in the middle 90s by Wednesday. The dry pattern will continue until moisture begins moving back into the region next weekend. A few showers can occur over the Wiregrass next Saturday and Sunday.

TONIGHT – Mostly cloudy. Low near 77°. Winds W at 5 mph.

TOMORROW – Partly cloudy, then isolated showers and thunderstorms. High near 98°. Winds N at 5-10 mph.

TOMORROW NIGHT – Mostly cloudy. Low near 78°. Winds SW at 5-10 mph.
